Master Machado comes to the US
In 1992, he arrived in the United States to continue his competitive success. Dominating the Brazilian jiu-jitsu scene both in the United States and in international competition, Machado gained worldwide recognition in 1999 with his performance at the Abu Dhabi Combat Club World Submission Wrestling Championships. Today, he is one of the most admired and respected Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in the world.
Master Machado’s talents have been showcased in several major motion pictures and television appearances. He has appeared in the motion pictures Force of the Spirit, Redbelt, MMA Worldwide, as well as other productions.
Jean Jacques has been sharing the gift of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the world for decades. He has two locations in California, located in Tarzana and Malibu, as well as many Affiliate Schools. If unable to attend one of these academies in person, Jean Jacques also has Online Training and his Master Collection on iTunes.
Julio Juarez is proud to be a student of Jean Jacques, and to carry the Machado banner above his own academy.
